Google’s John Mueller said this morning during a live webmaster hangout on YouTube around 5 minutes into the video that the Friday update the SEO community is chattering about is not related to the Penguin algorithm.

John said we can cross Penguin off the list for reasons why some SEOs and webmasters are noticing changes in the Google search results. He added that Google is constantly doing updates to the search results but he did not give any specific reason for this update or name the update.

Here is the video:
